How to Build an Energy-Efficient Home

For a new home to be considered truly energy efficient, it must be ENERGY STAR®-certified. The key to achieving certified status is the home’s ability to stand up to rigorous testing and inspections.

PSO offers up to $5,000 in rebates to homebuilders who construct energy-efficient homes. Before construction begins, familiarize yourself with the various components of an energy-efficient new home and discuss them with your builder. Important components include energy-efficient lighting, insulation, windows, ducts, and HVAC systems.
